Kibbutz Reshafim, 10905, Israel -

Inside the Whale

The livingroom

Open space: living room, dining room and kitchenette. People with children use part of this area for an additional bedroom.
The wall carpet is a joint effort of my wife and me. She rimmed the cloth, while I did all the knitting (my version). She did all the knitting while I got in her way (hers).


The TV and, yes, we do read the occasional book. The bathroom door can be seen in the background, the bedroom (which is none of your business) is just beside it.


The kitchen corner: rather small, but lunch was still eaten in the communal dining room at the time.

But that was then, in the stone ages, in the year 2000. Of all the hundreds of possible lunchers living on the kibbutz just a handful still used a little canteen, opened after the dining room was closed down in 2005, and even that feeble attempt of a public watering hole has been abandoned since.
